Cartier’s “Coloratura” Collection Celebrates Openness and Curiosity

Last week in the Cour Carré at the Louvre in Paris, Cartier celebrated the closing of Haute Couture week with a dinner and presentation of its newest high jewelry collection, “Coloratura.” There in attendance, guests like Naomi Watts, Golshifteh Fahrani, Monica Bellucci, Mélanie Laurent, Freida Pinto and Bianca Brandolini d’Adda got a first glance at the stunning pieces.

The collection celebrates two values that the house holds close—curiosity and openness. Highlighting a global sense of connection, Cartier visited the past and present, and varying cultures and generations, in a celebration of sharing and joy. This worldly diversity shined in vibrant colors of India, contrasts of Asia, palettes of Japan, and shades of Africa.

Necklines were illuminated by Asian ceremonial lanterns; a bottle pendant, hand-carved from a rough rubellite hollowed out to hold perfume, featured chalcedonies, chrysoprases, morganites, mandarin garnets, and onyx beads; and the art of carving, glyptic, was emphasized to preserve skills from artisans of Egyptian and Mesopotamian civilizations. We saw necklaces, earrings, bracelets, rings, and a headband—all dripping with elegance, diamonds, and gemstones.

One piece to note, extremely unique for its rarity, was the 18k yellow gold pendant watch necklace. It showcases a 5.96-carat briolette-cut diamond pendant with the house’s mysterious double tourbillon complication (originally crafted in 2013), four fancy light and fancy yellow pear-shaped brilliant-cut diamonds totaling 2.73 carats, and rose-cut, step-cut, and baguette-cut diamonds.

After the presentation and dinner, guests enjoyed classical and contemporary music with a performance by Marie-Agnès Gillot-choreographed dancers and a live performance by Dua Lipa.
